Megger recently donated 20 digital multimeters to 20 graduating high school seniors in the Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing Systems class at Johnson County High School (JCHS) located in Mountain City, Tennessee. The AVO830 digital Trms multimeter offers a voltage range up to 1000V Trms and is designed to reduce the need for additional auxiliary instrumentation, like phase rotation detectors and non-contact voltage wands.

JCHS offers its students an excellent construction program. Through this program, led by instructor Lee Cole, students are given the opportunity to build a house from start-to-finish, sell it and then use the money from the sale of the home to start the next house project. During the Fall 2019 home build, Lee contacted Megger about having them donate insulation testers to the program. Megger obliged by giving them four insulation testers, as well as an MTR105 motor tester, along with education materials for the classroom, including Megger’s ground and insulation testing guide booklets – Getting Down to Earth and A Stitch in Time. Megger was so moved by the school’s commitment to its students and the wonderful projects that they do, that they decided to donate an AVO830 to 20 graduating seniors in the program.

David S. Danner, director of US distribution for Megger, who has been working with JCHS said, “We are proud to donate 20 AVO830 multimeters to these deserving students. This will help them get started on the right foot as they leave high school and embark on their next journey.”

Perfect for use by electricians, technicians, service personnel and engineers, the AVO830 is a compact, well-built, high reliability multimeter is suitable for a wide range of applications, including maintenance of electrical applications and equipment, white goods service and electrical utilities.

Lee Cole, Construction teacher at JCHS, said, “I am tickled to death that Megger donated these multimeters to our seniors. They have outfitted these kids with the most expensive piece of equipment that they will need to start out in the workforce. They have taken away the obstacle of that expense for these students and have sent them well on their way, prepared to work with the very best equipment on the market from day one on the job.”
